Overview

First published in 1988, this is a treasure trove of insights into science in the kitchen. It contains an entertaining collection of pieces, ranging from recipes to historical notes, and from mathematical treatments to technical descriptions to challenge the stereotype of the scientist as an impractical eccentric. This paperback edition is being issued for new generations of readers to enjoy.
Almost all of the articles included were written especially for this book. Recipes range from the simple to the elaborate, for example Seymour Rabinovitch's "Boiled Can", to Nicholas Kurti's new instructions for preparing "Safe Salmonella-Contaminated Soft-Boiled Eggs".
But the Crackling is Superb demonstrates that some scientists enjoy writing light-heartedly on subjects outside their speciality.
Written for physicists interested in cooking, and for all of us intrigued to learn about science in the kitchen.
